This month has been a whirlwind. From my son graduating kindergarten to my daughter graduating high school, two separate occasions with family visiting from out of town, volunteering at school, finishing up t-ball, baseball, a lacross seasons, planning a graduation party, trying ZWOW workouts for the first time, and the month isn't over yet!
Rewind to Mother's Day weekend, because in a perfect blogging world, I would have had these pictures up the same day they were taken. Reality: I am an imperfect blogger and just trying to keep my head above water.
Our Mother's Day tradition is that my two sisters and I take Mom out for lunch and shopping. My Mom lives almost an hour away and is a full-time nanny, so I don't get to see her often. Plus, looking at the first paragraph, and you can see why I don't get out to visit her as often as I would like.
Mom came over the Saturday before Mother's Day and came to my boys' last games and awards. They were so excited that Nana made it out.
After sitting in the heat for 2 hours, it was time to meet up for lunch at PF Changs. We met up with my two sisters, my daughter, and a niece and nephew. After being so hot all morning, I couldn't eat fried food, so I opted for a salad. The first time I've ever had a salad at PF Chang's. It was pretty good.
This was followed by some bargain shopping, because if you know me, that's the only way I shop. We found some good deals and everyone went home happy.
The next week, my Mother-in-law came to visit. There is a restaurant that the Mr. painted that is close by. He and another artist, painted a 3D underwater mural. We went to dinner, and my parents came. I told them to act like they love each other.
I had a delicious Hawaiian Tilapia. It was heaven.
Fast foward to this past Saturday, the Mr. decided to smoke brisket and ribs. He started at 10pm Friday night. After several attempts to smoke meat, he has it down to a science. This was our pre-Graduation dinner.
Thanks to Jen from Peas and Crayons for hosting WIAW.
How is your May so far? Any exciting festivities?
